West Indies v South Africa

South Africa won by 7 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

0.1

Steyn to Gayle, no run, first ball angled across him, Gayle keeps his bat inside the line

0.2

Steyn to Gayle, no run, crunchy shot early, square drive, not wide enough of backward point

0.3

Steyn to Gayle, no run, swing in to him this time, Gayle defends off the front foot

0.4

Steyn to Gayle, 2 runs, off the mark, just a push down the ground, past the bowler, easy couple

0.5

Steyn to Gayle, no run, nice shape in towards him, defended just outside off, with the bottom hand off

0.6

Steyn to Gayle, no run, driven powerfully but straight to mid-off

West Indies 2/0   CH Gayle 2* (6b)

2.1

Steyn to Gayle, FOUR, nice shot, right on the top of the bounce but driving from away from the body, and also square of the wicket, the ball races away for four

2.2

Steyn to Gayle, no run, closer to the stumps, and he leaves it alone this time

2.3

Steyn to Gayle, no run, slightly shorter, but way too far from his body to interest him

2.4

Steyn to Gayle, 1 run, short, into the ribs, keeps it down and takes a single

West Indies 7/0   CH Gayle 7* (10b 1x4)

3.1

Morkel to Gayle, FOUR, short, looking for the ribs, bowls a bit too much down the leg side, nicely glanced away, Steyn makes a diving save at fine leg, but the replays show he touched the rope while fielding the ball. Good effort, though

3.2

Morkel to Gayle, no run, short again, around the ribs again, defended back to him

3.3

Morkel to Gayle, 1 run, fuller this time, gets the outside half of his bat, past cover

West Indies 12/0   CH Gayle 12* (13b 2x4)

4.1

Steyn to Gayle, 2 runs, punched away on the up, through extra cover for two

4.2

Steyn to Gayle, 2 runs, pushed through the covers again, on the up, with gentle hands, gets another couple

4.3

Steyn to Gayle, FOUR, not very pretty, but effective, this time he gets the width and throws his bat at it, with an open face, and deliberately over the infield. It is not a clean hit, but crawls to the boundary

4.4

Steyn to Gayle, no run, back of a length, close to off stump, defended

4.5

Steyn to Gayle, 1 wide, wided for height, good bounce in this pitch

4.5

Steyn to Gayle, no run, this is a better bouncer, aimed for his ribs and chest area, Gayle ducks under it

4.6

Steyn to Gayle, OUT, for the third time in the series Gayle has played one on, after having scored 20 of the 21 runs on the board. Not the smartest of the shots, looks to cut, but it is too full and too straight for the shot. Add the slight shape into him, and Gayle has got himself out

CH Gayle b Steyn 20 (19b 3x4 0x6) SR: 105.26

West Indies 21/2   CH Gayle 20 (19b 3x4)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
